Almost colleagues, Kerr and Blatt are rare rookies in finals

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) The path to the NBA Finals for Steve Kerr and David Blatt, a rare pair of rookie coaches on basketball's biggest stage, started with a meeting organized by their agent at Los Angeles International Airport last June.

The two clicked immediately, talking about their philosophies for basketball and life, and Kerr offered Blatt a spot on his new staff with the Golden State Warriors. Blatt, a successful coach internationally, had been waiting for the right opportunity to break into the NBA and initially accepted.

Then, an unexpected call gave their plans a twist.
